Morning – Whizz over to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™
08:00 – Wake up to sunshine! It’s sunny nearly every day. You have Early Park Admission†
to beat the crowds to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Diagon Alley™. Be the first to try Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™.
09:00 – It’s early enough for the rest of the best rides: head to Despicable Me Minion Mayhem™ and visit Krustyland where Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie will join you to experience the wild, fun-filled The Simpsons Ride™.
12:00 – For lunch, you deserve the catch of the day. Lombard’s Seafood Grille™ will delight every girl and boy with whatever takes your fancy, whether fancy or simple: lobster roll, calamari, fish tacos… plus burgers too.
Download The Official Universal Orlando Resort™ App for live queue times and interactive maps, ready for the parks.
Afternoon – Drop a new track
14:00 – Ease back into the swing of things with Shrek 4-D or E.T. Adventure™ for the kids. Then go all out at TRANSFORMERS: The Ride 3D and Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit™, where you pick your soundtrack whilst you ride the track. Sadly, they don’t have ‘Life is a Rollercoaster’.
16:00 – Then hit the shops. Whether you’re buying or browsing, the shops in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ stock the unexpected. If you buy an Interactive Wand you can actually cast spells around Diagon Alley™ and Hogsmeade™. At Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes buy and name your own Pygmy Puff.
17:00 – It’s been a long day, so refresh. Butterbeer™ is even more delicious when it’s frozen. Before heading back to your room, hop on the Hogwarts™ Express at King’s Cross Station to arrive at Hogsmeade™ Station in Universal’s Islands of Adventure™ and exit the parks.
Evening – Rock, chocolate and outdoor cinema
19:00 – Dinner follows at The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen™. It’s got monumental milkshakes so make sure you save room for dessert.
20:30 – Evening falls and you can watch Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular: 100 Years of Movie Memories™ on the Universal Studios lagoon. They’ve packed in an affectionate history of Universal films, complete with fireworks and fountains.
21:00 – For themed evening experiences, plan to visit the different hotels. Let the Hard Rock Hotel® woo you with Velvet Sessions⁵- live music and smooth cocktails, or go to Loews Sapphire Falls Resort for their Strong Water Tavern tapas.
